One kvetch from the other side of the pond doesn’t realize that much of his least favorite jargon comes from Variety, which announces that Brit heartthrob David Tennant's Hamlet will air on PBS.

I recommend the Sundance crowd-pleaser, the eco-thriller doc The Cove, which is definitely not for younger kids. It’s as disturbing as it is entertaining.

    Side note: You should get the domain or toh!.com.
